This was a show i'll never forget because i had not been out west since my New Year run in 91-92.Let me say the scene was great and the music right along par. So the Dead still had it at these shows which were better than the oregon shows right after. I'm hanging with my buddies from Canada and we tore it up night after night. Did the tour with Ko were the hell are you now?

Sydthecat, thanks for recommending the Est Prophet, it's a great jam, and I don't know if I would of made it through the show to find this somewhat tarnished gem.
This was my first show (and my 18th birthday) after years of listening to old tapes and missing out on 94 Seattle and Eugene b/c I was too scared of my parents to say F*ck off, I"m going to see the Dead!!
Well, needless to say it was a bit anticlimactic to hear Jerry forget half of Touch of Grey's lyrics to start my first show. I saw all 5 of the PNW run, and thankfully we got 5/26, which I find to be a great show(for 94, 95). Oh well, all is good.

I watched much of this show in fascinated horror---my first of '95. All I had heard was the Salt Lake "Visions" show and assumed all was (relatively) well. I knew nothing of the Oakland debacles and the lame Spring Tour (which actually turned out to have the last of the good music played mostly in Philly, Memphis and Atlanta). I knew nothing about Blair Jackson's analysis of the painful '94. The few '94 tapes I had were actually pretty good. I was out of touch with mainstream Dead-dom at the time and had had an excellent '94 myself in Seattle (first night is great!) and Eugene (third night one for the ages). This return to Seattle was to be a highlight and a blessing (I lived in nearby Vancouver and rejoiced they were playing the Pacific Northwest again).

But it all rolls into one and there's nothing you can hold for very long. With the exception of a Bird Song jam where Garcia pulls out some tasty Sonny Sharrock-style lines this show bites. I was happy to hear Iko again for the first time in many years but knew that all cylinders were misfiring. At the time I put it down to first night jitters but...you know. Then I saw the next two shows. Then I went to Portland and witnessed a Crazy Fingers flameout.

The exception here then, is a rather stunning Estimated Prophet which, as it happens, is one of my favourite Bob tunes. They play it off and Jerry rallies from somewhere deep inside matching the rest of the band's bravado. I remember thinking, at the time, where'd this come from and had high hopes for the rest of the gig (so did they no doubt). But the Wharf Rat disappoints and we all know the rest.

I take the time to write this because I feel I should review all the shows I've seen at this point. And to draw attention to the Esto for those who don't mind these late period shows. Want to hear another example of Jerry waking up and cutting a rug? Check out the RFK "New Speedway" from the following summer tour---it's as if Hornsby inspires him to kick out the jams.

I give this one two for the Bird Song and the Esto.

Not appreciably better or wrose than any other '95 show. I.e., it stinks.
